I'm as bad as the next person when it comes to re-watching shows on Netflix. Shows like The Office and Shameless have us hooked and we can't seem to watch anything else, even with the hundreds of shows that streaming services like Netflix and Amazon have to offer. Still, there are a few shows worth checking out:
1. "Sneaky Pete", Amazon Prime
Do you remember Phoebe's brother Frank from Friends? Well, he's starring in his own Amazon show about a con-man who's just been released from prison and is trying to repay a debt to Bryan Cranston to save his brother. In order to do this, he pretends to be his prison roommate, Pete, and lives with Pete's family in order to cover up. It will make you realize your family is not as dysfunctional as you think, and it has all the intrigue and back-and-forth of a good con.
2. "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend", Netflix
If you like musicals, this show is for you. Rebecca Bunch is hell-bent on making her ex-boyfriend fall in love with her, a storyline that most of us can relate to. It's quirky and completely original, with a song sang by the cast each episode, that will have you singing to yourself and wondering if you're as crazy as Rebecca. Seasons 1 and 2 are on Netflix right now so get on it.
3. "Love", Netflix
Season 2 of this dry, yet endearing show is being released on March 10th. The first season is only 10 episodes so you can catch up quick. It follows two people living in L.A. and trying to navigate their jobs as they, you guessed it, fall in love with each other. The humor is extremely sarcastic, and most often found from Mickey's off-beat Australian roommate, this show is worth the watch.
4. "Santa Clarita Diet", Netflix
If you like zombies but The Walking Dead is too much, this is the show for you. Drew Barrymore plays a recently-turned zombie, while her family is just trying to live a normal suburban life. Not the greatest show ever made, but it has heart and it will make you laugh, even as you find yourself completed disgusted by Barrymore eating a leg.
5. "The Man in the High Castle", Amazon Prime
If you've ever wondered what the world would be like if the Allies hadn't won World War II, this show is for you. It's an Emmy-winning show currently in its second season, and it has all the intrigue and political plot twists you could ask for while you wait for House of Cards to come back.
